US 41 Bridge in Parke County will close May 18

PARKE COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces U.S. 41 will close nearly four miles south of State Road 234 on or after Monday, May 18.  The contractor will be replacing a small structure with a new bridge over the West Prong of Green Creek which is located just south of County Road 1050 North. Work is scheduled to be completed by September 18.  The detour follows U.S. 36 to S.R. 63 to S.R. 234 then back to U.S. 41.

HIS Constructors, Inc. was awarded this contract for $2 million.  This project also includes a small structure replacement on U.S. 41 just over two miles north of I-74 and a thin deck overlay three miles south of S.R. 234 over Middle Prong Green Creek. Work was completed last year on the U.S. 41 Bridges over I-74.
